Recent Player News

12 days ago: Tyler Boyd Steps Up In Week 13
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd had a team-high eight targets in the loss to the Broncos on Sunday, finishing the afternoon with 97 yards on six receptions. It was the third week in a row that the 24-year-old has had as many targets and the fourth of his last five with the most during that span coming against Baltimore in Week 11. With wide receiver A.J. Green (foot) more than likely out for the remainder of the season, look for Boyd to be the lead man offensively and continue to get some extra attention from quarterback Jeff Driskel moving forward.

19 days ago: Tyler Boyd Has Big Game Versus Browns
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd was the Bengals number one receiver with A.J. Green (toe) still sidelined. Boyd saw 11 targets last week and was only able to haul in four of them, but bounced back on Sunday. He caught seven of his eight targets for 85 yards and a touchdown in the loss to the Browns in Week 12. It's unclear when Green is actually going to return, so that makes it difficult to judge the value of Boyd. He should be at least a WR3 versus Denver next week.

26 days ago: Tyler Boyd Has 71 Receiving Yards In Week 11
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd hauled in four of his 11 targets in Sunday's loss to the Ravens, finishing with 71 receiving yards. He also attempted one pass, but it fell incomplete. With A.J. Green out, Boyd was the focal point of the Bengals offense, but his low catch rate negated some of that upside. Still, Boyd remains a solid fantasy option, especially in PPR leagues.

1 month ago: Tyler Boyd Held In Check On Sunday
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd wasn't able to take advantage of the absence of A.J. Green during Sunday's 51-14 loss to New Orleans. While the Saints maintained possession of the ball for the majority of the game, Boyd brought in only three receptions for 65 yards. With Green out of the equation, the 23-year-old was expected to see a significant rise in fantasy value but was related to only four targets from quarterback Andy Dalton with John Ross leading the team in that area with six. Things won't get any easier in Week 11 as Cincy will take on a Baltimore team that has fared well against opposing wideouts all season.

1 month ago: Tyler Boyd Set For Increased Opportunities
With A.J. Green sidelined, emerging stud Tyler Boyd will take over as the lead receiver in the Bengals offense. When Green left the game back in Week 3, Boyd exploded for six catches, 132 yards, and a touchdown. Green's 9.5 targets are up for grabs, and Dalton will surely be looking to Boyd as the main beneficiary with only Alex Erickson and John Ross serving as his competition for looks. Though he may receive increased attention defensively, Boyd should square off against slot cornerback PJ Williams, who has been getting torched all season. Consider Tyler Boyd a high-end WR2 who has a chance to break into the top-10 among wide receivers this week.

2 months ago: Tyler Boyd Torches Hapless Bucs
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd snatched nine of 10 targets for 138 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His score came on a nine-yard pass in the second quarter and both Boyd and counterpart A.J. Green capitalized on Tampas doormat defense. They couldve had bigger days had the Bengals not protected a sizeable lead after the first half. Boyd has been a menace playing both on the outside and in the slot and now boasts an impressive 620 yards and five touchdowns on the season. Hes teasing WR1 territory and will remain a must-start after the teams bye in Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints.

2 months ago: Tyler Boyd Runs Wild Against Steelers
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd had himself a day despite his team falling to the Steelers on Sunday. After struggling in Week 5, Boyd was back on track in this one, finishing the day with seven receptions for 62 yards and two touchdowns. With the team missing so many options on the offensive end, quarterback Andy Dalton will continue to call his number moving forward with Boyd looking to keep it going when the Bengals play the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football next week.

2 months ago: Tyler Boyd Looks To Rebound Against Pittsburgh
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd was ineffective on Sunday in the win over the Dolphins, pulling in only four receptions for 44 yards. Prior to Week 5, Boyd was the talk of the town, racking up 349 yards and two scores off of 26 receptions through four games. With a questionable and unproductive Pittsburgh defense ahead of him in Week 6, and with running back Joe Mixon and wide receiver A.J. Green both anticipated to be getting a lot of attention, the door will be open for Boyd to make some waves on Sunday.

2 months ago: Tyler Boyd Cools Off In Week 5
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd struggled during Sunday's 27-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins. After hauling in 23 receptions for 323 yards and two touchdowns over the last three weeks, Boyd caught only four passes for 44 yards. With running back Joe Mixon (knee) returning and reclaiming a significant stake in the team's offense, Boyd lost some of his luster but will look to get it back in Week 6 against the Steelers.

2 months ago: Tyler Boyd Will Get Some Looks On Sunday
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd will have the chance to continue his solid play in Week 5 against the Dolphins. With running back Giovani Bernard (knee), tight end Tyler Eifert (ankle), and wide receiver John Ross (groin) all of the equation in addition to extra attention for wide receiver A.J. Green, Boyd should get plenty of looks from quarterback Andy Dalton, making him a potential useful option on Sunday.

3 months ago: Tyler Boyd Goes Nuts Against Atlanta
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd had arguably the best game of his young career against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Boyd caught 11 of his 15 targets, accumulating 100 yards in the process and has already surpassed his reception total from last season. With tight end Tyler Eifert (ankle) out for the year and wide receiver John Ross not being used consistently, Boyd should continue to get looks from quarterback Andy Dalton, especially since opposing defenses will continue to pay extra attention to wide receiver A.J. Green moving forward.

3 months ago: Tyler Boyd Steps Up In Week 3
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd had another solid performance despite his team falling to the Carolina Panthers in Week 3. Boyd stepped up after wide receiver A.J. Green prematurely exited with a groin injury, accumulating 132 yards and a score on only six receptions. Despite the expectation that wide receiver John Ross would be the second option in the team's passing attack, it has been Boyd who has served as the sufficient alternative, catching 12 passes for 223 yards and two scores over the past two weeks. Whether he will maintain this level of involvement moving forward is yet to be seen, but he will have plenty of opportunities moving ahead, especially if Green and running back Joe Mixon (Knee) are unable to suit up next Sunday in Atlanta.

7 months ago: Tyler Boyd Looking to Break Out in Cincinnati
Cincinnati Bengals receiver Tyler Boyd should benefit from the Bengals new offensive regime. He is expected to play primarily in the slot, but could get some looks on the outside as well. Boyd had 22 catches for 225 yards and two touchdowns last season. The 2016 second-round pick is looking to break out in his third NFL season, and could be a sleeper in deeper fantasy formats next year.

9 months ago: Charges Dropped Against Tyler Boyd
Drug charges against Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd were dismissed in Pittsburgh. Boyd was originally charged with possessing a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia after his vehicle was wrecked in Pittsburgh in July. Boyd has maintained that he was not at the scene of the car and that a friend was driving the car instead. That friend ended up admitting it and was charged with several different things. Boyd, 23, has 76 career receptions for 828 yards and three touchdowns and will enter next season competing for a starting role out of camp.

12 months ago: Tyler Boyd Hauls in Second Touchdown
Cincinnati Bengals receiver Tyler Boyd had his best game of the season on Sunday, hauling in five catches for 91 yards and a touchdown. The touchdown was just his second of the season and the 91 yards was nearly half his season total of 225. It was a disappointing season for the second year man, who battled injuries and lost his role as the No. 2 receiver to Brandon Lafell. Boyd has potential still, and could benefit from a coaching change in Cincinnati next season. He is a late-round flyer in deeper leagues heading into 2018.

1 year ago: Tyler Boyd Finds End Zone in Week 12
Cincinnati Bengals receiver Tyler Boyd hauled in two catches for 17 yards on Sunday, including his first touchdown of the season. Boyd has struggled with injuries and a lack of opportunities this season, so it was nice to see him find the end zone for the first time since 2016. Boyd finished fifth on the Bengals in targets on Sunday and is not a fantasy option going forward. Brandon Lafell has taken over as the No. 2 receiver behind A.J. Green, and with Joe Mixon, Giovani Bernard and Tyler Kroft all options as well, Boyd is unlikely to see more than a target or two per game.

1 year ago: Tyler Boyd Expects to Play Sunday
Bengals receiver Tyler Boyd (knee) is hoping to play this Sunday against the Broncos. Boyd has missed the last four games with an MCL sprain but was able to practice in a limited capacity last week and was scratched despite being a full participant last Friday. Boyd was on the field to start practice on Wednesday and barring a setback should be able to go on Sunday. He slots in as the No. 3 receiver for the Bengals and does not project to provide much, if any, fantasy relevance.

1 year ago: Tyler Boyd Out Against Titans
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd will not play on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. Boyd has missed the past three games as a result of a knee ailment but was able to practice this week. He wasn't listed on the team's injury report on Friday which would indicate that he is a healthy scratch. This isn't the first time that the young wideout has been kept out of the lineup this season by head coach Marvin Lewis and would appear to open the door for an expanded role for rookie wide receiver John Ross.

1 year ago: Tyler Boyd Returns to Practice for Bengals
Bengals receiver Tyler Boyd (knee) is back at practice on Wednesday and practicing fully. Barring a setback he should be good to go for Sunday's contest against the Titans. Boyd has only caught six passes on the season for 43 total yards. With AJ Green avoiding a suspension it is highly unlikely that Boyd will have a big enough role to merit starting in any fantasy formats.

1 year ago: Tyler Boyd Officially Out
Tyler Boyd (knee) is officially out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Boyd has only received nine targets on the year, hauling in six of them for 43 yards. His absence may carve out a small role for rookie John Ross, who had one target last week against the Colts.

1 year ago: Tyler Boyd Unlikely to Suit up Sunday
Tyler Boyd (knee) did not practice again on Thursday for the Bengals. Heading into a tough Week 9 matchup against the Jaguars, Boyd will need to suit up tomorrow in order to have a chance to be active on Sunday. That is looking less likely, making Boyd a must-sit. John Ross may have an increased workload in Boyd's absence, but the Jaguars are good at stifling the passing game so Cincinnatti receivers are in for a tough one.

1 year ago: Tyler Boyd Officially Ruled out
Tyler Boyd (knee) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Colts. Boyd has been the fourth receiving option on offense this season and may lose his playing time to first round pick John Ross who is being activated for just the second time this season. Boyd has six receptions for 43 yards on the season and should not be owned except in the deepest of fantasy formats.

1 year ago: Tyler Boyd Does Not Practice Wednesday
Tyler Boyd (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. His status for Sunday's contest is unclear. Boyd has served as the fourth option on offense primarily this season, and the potential return of John Ross (knee) could push him even further down the depth chart. Boyd has six receptions for 43 yards on the season and should not be owned except in the deepest fantasy formats.

1 year ago: John Ross, Tyler Boyd Inactive Sunday
Cincinnati Bengals wide receivers John Ross (knee) and Tyler Boyd (knee) will be unavailable to play when the team takes on divisional rival Pittsburgh Steelers. Boyd injured the knee against the Buffalo Bills and could potentially return in Week 8. Ross has been dealing with the knee issue, as well as conduct issues, since the preseason and his anticipated return date is unknown at this time. In their absences, wide receiver A.J. Green will see the majority of the targets from quarterback Andy Dalton with wide receiver Brandon LaFell, tight end Tyler Kroft and running back Giovani Bernard all potentially seeing an increase in production.

1 year ago: Tyler Boyd Doesn't Practice Thursday
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd (knee) hasn't practiced yet this week, leaving his status for Sunday's matchup against Pittsburgh up in the air. Boyd left the game against the Buffalo Bills in Week 5 and though the injury initially appeared severe, it was later revealed that the receiver luckily had suffered only an MCL sprain. Despite showing signs of progression as a rookie last year, Boyd's season has been a let down, catching only six receptions for a horrific 43 yards. This is disappointing, especially for fantasy owners who had high hopes for him coming into the season.

1 year ago: Tyler Boyd Expected To Miss Time
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd (knee) is expected to miss a few weeks. The injury has been officially diagnosed as a sprained MCL and occurred during the team's win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Boyd, who has been held out of a game this season by head coach Marvin Lewis, has seen his production decline and has only six receptions for 43 yards on the year. His absence could mean more targets for wide receivers Brandon LaFell and John Ross if he is able to return in time from his own knee issue.

1 year ago: Tyler Boyd Injured In Week 5
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd suffered a right knee injury in Week 5 and didn't return to the game. He caught only two passes for six yards before departing and has been a non-factor for Cincy's passing game all season. Brandon LaFell is the Bengals clear No. 2 receiver across from A.J. Green, so Boyd shouldn't have been owned in many leagues to begin with. Check back later to see what the severity of Boyd's injury is.

1 year ago: Tyler Boyd Inactive On Thursday And Not Sure Why
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd was listed as inactive in the team's week 2 matchup with the Houston Texans. Though it was first thought that Boyd was inactive due to a hamstring issue, it was later revealed by head coach Marvin Lewis that Boyd was a "healthy scratch." With Boyd himself wondering why he was held out, many are speculating that it was due to the activation of wide receiver John Ross, who made his league debut during the game. Things are getting interesting in Cincinnati with former offensive coordinator Ken Zampese getting the axe this week, Boyd's role isn't as clear cut as he thought it was during the preseason. Though his job as the team's primary slot receiver may in fact still be safe, it also may not be with the new direction of new offensive head Bill Lazor. Fantasy owners will have to stay tuned to this situation as it progresses during the coming weeks.

1 year ago: John Ross Making Debut, Tyler Boyd Inactive Thursday Night
Cincinnati Bengals rookie wide receiver John Ross (knee) is active for Week 2 against the Texans on Thursday, and receiver Tyler Boyd is a healthy inactive as a result. Ross, a pint-sized speedster, was inactive in Week 1 and figures to be eased into playing time in the Bengals offense. He offers tantalizing upside for his speed and breakaway ability in open space, but he may disappoint his fantasy owners with inconsistency for much of the year. Boyd's stock obviously takes a big hit with Ross healthy.

1 year ago: Tyler Boyd Expected To Be Featured As The Bengals Slot Receiver
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd is expected to be featured in the slot when the team kicks off the season against the Baltimore Ravens. Since the selection of wide receiver John Ross at the draft this past offseason, Boyd has been the topic of conversation regarding his status. However, team officials have indicated their satisfaction with his progress and as a result, Boyd is expected to continue to be locked in at that position with Ross eventually battling veteran wide receiver Brandon LaFell for the number two spot. Boyd finished his rookie season with 603 yards on 54 receptions for the Bengals and only managed to produce one touchdown despite seeing more action after wide receiver A.J. Green went down with a hamstring injury in week 11. Boyd should see similar production this season but will have to fight for targets with LaFell, Ross, Green and tight end Tyler Eifert. He will likely be floating around towards the end of fantasy drafts and could have very limited value in PPR leagues. However, if one of the aforementioned receivers gets injured throughout the season, Boyd could be an ok pickup in the event you are desperate and in need of a receiver with a pretty good upside.
